Global Server Rail Kit Market 2017-2021
About Server Rail Kit
A server rail kit is the rack mounting hardware, which is used to mount heavier equipment such as the hard disk arrays to a server rack. The rail kit is dependent upon the type of rack and the amount of hardware being mounted on the rack. The rail kits are installed on to the rack using the mounting screws. The rail in the rack system essentially needs to be aligned and should be flexible enough to support the system mounted on it. The cage nuts are used in the rails, as they are the most cost effective, fast, and flexible method of mounting.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global server rail kit market to grow at a CAGR of 10.54% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is reduction in price of data center racks. The server rail kit market is highly dependent on the data center rack market. As the number of data center facilities has increased exponentially across the world, the data center rack market has become highly competitive. The racks are modernized by the vendors to meet the growing demands for the high-density computing in the modern day high density computing.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is customized data center racks. Many global as well as local players offer various data center racks of different sizes offering a wide variety of configuration. Some of the vendors also offer customized data center rack solutions, which are designed and developed as per the requirement of the enterprises. The customization includes the support for high-density racks, along with efficient cooling. The customization also helps in the installation of additional infrastructure in the racks by increasing their sizes. The customized racks are usually priced more as compared with the ready-to-deploy rack infrastructure. This also assists in the development of hot/cold aisle solutions. The customization option for the racks will require customized rail kits as well, which will be a price driver for the market during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is issues associated with management of servers. The increasing requirements for the data center infrastructure among the enterprises to support their growing needs of the data centers have necessitated the enterprises to ensure efficient management of the servers. The data center servers are interlinked and are expected to communicate with other networks. At times when the servers fail because of any technical reason, the replacement may be difficult because of their non-compatibility with the racks used. The increasing complexity of the data center equipment is a challenge for the vendors, as they have to ensure compatibility with the hardware mounted on the racks by the rail kits.
